Clinical supervision plays a critical and demanding role in providing (and receiving) high quality mental health care. This presentation offers an overview of clinical supervision and the roles we play as supervisors. Administrative and managerial considerations will be shared. A larger emphasis will be placed on reviewing theories of counselor development and clinical supervision. These theories will be applied to hypothetical cases, illustrating how different facets of the relationship can impact the overall supervisory alliance/dynamic. Assessments, interventions, and remediation techniques will also be introduced with an emphasis on intentionally fostering the therapeutic skills necessary to be an effective supervisee.
- Participants will review multiple approaches to supervision including different theories and the differences between work & training supervision.
- Participants will review and discuss important aspects of building a strong supervisory working alliance with their supervisees.
- Participants will discuss how to approach supervision from a developmental perspective in an attempt to best meet the needs of a supervisee.
